With awareness of environmental issues rising around the world, sales of eco-friendly products and services, including clothing and apparel, has doubled since 2007, reaching $500 billion U.S. dollars in 2008.
Environmentally-friendly clothing begins with fibers.
Clothing production has many facets, including fiber raw materials, processing of raw materials, formation of textile cloth, apparel production, wear testing and consumer recycling. When environmentally-friendly industry develops clothing (http://www.qualitydress.com/buy-Apparel_And_Clothing/ ), they should consider, first of all, the raw materials of the fiber. These fibers should have at least one of the following characteristics:
1. Pollution-free raw materials (http://www.qualitydress.com/buy-rubber_raw_materials ) to cause less pollution, or the use of sustainable green resources 2. Any synthetic products in the fibers should use energy-saving, environmentally-friendly and sustainable development processes in line with industry requirements during their creation. 3. The printing, dyeing and finishing processes should use non-toxic, biodegradable slurry, etc. and use the most advanced technology and equipment during production and when processing waste. 4. Fibers should be non-toxic and comfortable to people 5. Whenever possible, recycled materials should be used.
Sources of environmentally-friendly fibers can be divided into three major categories: Natural fiber plants, natural animal fibers and synthetic fibers.
1. Natural plant fibers: Cotton fiber (http://www.qualitydress.com/buy-cotton_fabric_apparel/ ) (including organic cotton, colored cotton and non-wrinkle cotton), Lyocell fiber, Flax fiber, Bamboo fiber (http://www.qualitydress.com/buy-bamboo_fiber_socks/ ) and plant protein fibers. 2.
